Public policy is government action, in the form of legislation, regulation, funding, and other actions. Public policy affects people with cancer and the cancer care system in many ways, including the following:
In addition to government action, NCCS advocates with non-government organizations whose decisions and policies affect the care that cancer patients receive.
NCCS has long believed that policy change is essential to ensuring cancer survivors have access to high-quality, evidence-based cancer care. We represent the perspective of cancer survivors in public policy discussions. We encourage and empower survivors to share their stories with policymakers.
Our public policy advocacy is central to our mission to ensure quality cancer care for everyone touched by cancer.
